GRENOBLE, France, Aug. 4, 2017 — A high-resolution, flexible plastic fingerprint sensor developed by Isorg SA and FlexEnable Ltd. won the Silver Applications “Best of” Award at the 2017 Sensors Expo and Conference.

“Isorg is very honored to have received an international award for our groundbreaking, high-resolution flexible image sensor technology whilst attending the most important global trade event dedicated to sensor innovations,” said Emmanuel Guerineau, general manager and chief financial officer at Isorg. “We are delighted to have collaborated with FlexEnable to produce the world’s first printed electronics image sensor that overcomes the limitations of traditional sensors. Biometric solution providers will be able to take advantage of the key differentiating factors that our technology brings, such as customized formats in large and small sizes, and easy integration. We see these opening up new opportunities across multiple applications.”

The high-resolution, ultrathin, 500-dpi flexible image sensor conforms to 3D shapes and provides dual detection with fingerprinting as well as vein matching. Due to its large-area sensing and high-resolution image quality, the device is highly suited to biometric applications from fingerprint scanners and smartcards to mobile phones.

Isorg is planning to launch high-volume production of the flexible image sensor at its new plant in Limoges, France, in order to support its large-scale commercialization in the global biometrics market. The global biometrics hardware market is expected to grow from $3.9 billion in 2016 to $6.2 billion by 2021, according to the Yole Développement.

“We are delighted that the large area flexible fingerprint sensor we developed with Isorg has been recognized with such a prestigious award,” said Paul Cain, strategy director at FlexEnable. “Thanks to being thin, light and glass-free, the sensor can be conformed to almost any surface to enable new form factors and use cases not possible with conventional fingerprint sensors.”

The Sensors Expo and Conference, held in San Jose, Calif., is the largest gathering of engineers and engineering professionals involved in sensors and sensing-related technologies. Isorg is a developer of organic and printed electronics for large-area photodetectors and image sensors. FlexEnable is an organic electronics developer.
